@Ade1

I moved your thread from General Chat to the Tech Help board where you are more likely to get a helpful response.

 

As per our usual procedures I left a Moderator's note as way of explaining my actions.

Re: Connecting router to LG smart TV

Hello Ade1,

This may help if you have not done it already. I Googled 'Connecting router to smart LG TV.'

There is quite a lot of Information on various sites. LG do their own support guide.

I sympathise - my TV is connected via WiFi through a set top box and I recently lost connection with the router. It took me quite a while to reconnect again.

Good luck.

It sounds as though you have not got the correct remote unit.

Re: Connecting router to LG smart TV

Hello thanks for your comment about the remote it is the correct remote for the tv as the model number is inside the battery cover matching the tv. But thanks.

Re: Connecting router to LG smart TV

There should be a menu, or settings on the tv which you can access via your remote.

Once in that menu there should be something which says network connections, from there you have to enter the code for your router to get access.

I have a LG tv but it's a more recent model so I am basing my answer on that.

Re: Connecting router to LG smart TV

Thank you I have been through the settings as you stated, it doesn't ask for my router password though it takes me to a screen that I can either choose auto or manual. I've just ran a test and attached a photo of the message displayed.

Re: Connecting router to LG smart TV

If the model number (42LM615T) is correct, it's not a Smart TV, the next model up (620) is.

Have a look at the comments on Amazon.
